---- — After Friday, Feb. 21's game against Indianapolis Tech didn't go the way the Zionsville boys basketball team wanted it to, they needed a bounce back win. Luckily for the Eagles, they didn't have to wait long to get it. Less than 24 hours after losing to Tech 63-47, Zionsville faced one of the top teams in 3A, Brebeuf Jesuit, and defeated the Braves 58-56. "We got beat pretty good last night at Tech and it is hard to bounce back in 15-16 hours or whatever it was," Zionsville head coach Shaun Busick said. "Brebeuf is a great team. I don't want to put a jinx on them, but having coached in a 3A championship game, they have what it takes to win it. For us to win this game, that was back-and-forth the whole way is a quality win for us." Neither team led by more than seven the entire game. Zionsville led four at the end of the first quarter and one at the half. Brebeuf, behind potential Indiana All-Star PJ Thompson, came stayed right with the Eagles in the second half, pulling even at 41 heading to the fourth quarter.
